Mahumevo Adjagbo Group's story

Mahumevo Adjagbo is a group of three people who live in the same district of Benin. The representative of the group, Ginette (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 32 years old and married to a man named Abéminanchi. The couple has four children to support and they all attend school. Ginette and her husband live with their children and cover the various household expenses between them. Ginette did not go to school and for the past fourteen years or so has been selling a variety of products (canned foods, spaghetti, soap) from her home and via the distribution system. She is passionate about her business, which enables her to provide for her own needs as well as those of her children. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin. With a view to satisfying customer demand, Ginette is requesting a first loan with the other members of the Mahumevo Adjagbo group. This loan will be used to satisfy their customer demand and to make more money.

In this group: Ginette , Lucresse, Estelle
